“Having the opportunity to hear about the innovative ideas developed by the winners who feature within the top ten list was incredibly impressive, and highlights the creativity the start-up scene has to offer across the UK, Ireland and European regions.
All of the winners are genuinely creating technology that will improve and enhance lives and we’re looking forward to supporting these organisations in the next stage of their growth.”

“The NIHR Surgical MedTech Cooperative is delighted to support this initiative, which
highlights the need for technologies that improve
outcomes and quality of life for patients and the
general public.
The quality of applications was high, and
we will definitely see some of these technologies in
circulation and making a difference to people’s lives”.

“We are delighted to have been chosen as the winner of Super Connect for Good 2021! It means a lot to have been chosen from amongst such high-quality companies. The whole competition has been a great experience.
